Behavioral Health service is a program available for you and your family. Our goal strives toward improving overall physical and mental health. The services help when stressed or worried about life problems that interfere with daily life.

What problems can the Behavioral Health help with?
Behavioral Health can help develop plans for stress management or other lifestyle changes. It can also help with emotional or behavioral problems related to interpersonal problems, grief, depression, anxiety, or anger.
Behavioral Health can also help your family reduce or cope better with symptoms of various medical conditions such as migraine and tension headaches, fibromyalgia, diabetes, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, hypertension, and irritable bowel syndrome and many others.

How is Behavioral Health different from the Health Clinic’s Health team?
Behavioral Health simply adds another option for your family's complete health care. Behavioral Health provides consultation and brief intervention — not traditional psychotherapy. If you request it, or if Behavioral Health professionals think your family would benefit from it, they will be referred to specialty mental health services.
Behavioral Health has a close working relationship with your Soldier’s primary medical provider and will keep them updated on how they are doing.
Remember: The primary medical provider and you are still the leaders of your health care team. Behavioral Health’s main job is to help them to develop and implement the most helpful health care plan.
Who is eligible to use Behavioral Health?
Anyone who has a Primary Care physician at the Health Clinic. Self-referrals are also accepted.

What is not appropriate for Behavioral Health?
Everyone can have a bad day.  Services are typically not required for short-term life challenges (i.e., single outburst of emotions.)
